United States Forces Somalia After Action Report And Historical Overview: The United States Army In Somalia, 1992 - 1994
"The United States Army has a long tradition of humanitarian relief. No such operation has proven as costly or shocking, however, as that undertaken in Somalia from August 1992 to March 1994. Greeted initially by Somalis happy to be saved from starvation, U.S. troops were slowly drawn into inter- clan power struggles and ill-defined "nation-building" missions. The American people woke up one day in early October 1 993 to news reports of dozens of our soldiers killed or wounded in fierce fighting in the streets of the capital city, Mogadishu. These disturbing events of a decade ago have taken on increasing meaning after the horrific attacks of 11 September 2001."
